EQ Files: Ironwork*

Next up in my EQ Project Files sharing is a design I can’t really take credit for. Several years ago I worked at a restaurant and dinner theater in a beautiful 1930s building that had this ironwork design over the windows. A co-worker built a set piece that could be separated into two or four pieces. All together, it looked just like this quilt. Mike was kind enough to share the design with me, and I popped it into EQ. It became a bit of an obsession, and I did a Quilt Along with it, which you can find in several parts here, here, here, here and here.

Here’s the finished quilt (this one’s a mini, the large one is still sitting in pieces in a tote):

Here’s the EQ illustration:

Here are several alternate colorways – I recolored this obsessively.

More about the EQ Files project: I’m a huge fan of Electric Quilt. I’ve made exponentially more virtual quilts than real quilts, and I thought it might be nice to share some of those virtual quilts here.  I’ll also share an EQ project file that you can download. Fair warning – if you don’t have EQ you won’t be able to use these files. I’ll be sharing mostly EQ8 files, so if you have an older version you may want to upgrade. It’s worth it, I promise!

Once in a great while, I might write up instructions for a quilt. If I do that, I may share the instructions here for free. If it’s a particularly complex pattern, I might spend more time writing it up and turn it into a pattern for sale. Don’t hold your breath, though.

As stated many times before, I receive no compensation from Electric Quilt for any of this – I just really love the product. I am (at least I think I still am) an EQ Artist on their Do You EQ website.

  1. I remember how much I loved this design when you came up with it, so much that I had to make the quilt in one of your colorways (I don’t see that particular one in this post, though). It turned out beautifully. About this time of year I switch out my large wall hanging in the living room, and the Ironworks quilt is going up next.

  2. What a nice idea for a quilt! 🙂 I have to confess: I know the feeling as well: I’ve designed a quilt based on the lamps they have at my work
